Alonso Forced To Suck On Hamilton's Pole

Those 'pole' jokes never get old do they? Yeah ok, maybe they do...

Lewis Hamilton outclassed Fernando Alonso again during qualifying yesterday. That was impressive enough as it is, but Alonso couldn't even match Hamilton's first Qualie 3 pole time leaving only the rookie himself to break it.

I feel like I'm a broken record when I talk about Lewis Hamilton, so to put things in perspective for you: I'm a Ferrari fan, I've been one for many many years BUT watching this young rookie reinvigorate the sport and do such incredible things inspires me to support him week after week, despite the fact that he drives for a rival team. If Lewis can claim victory in the Indianapolis Grand Prix today then he has a very real chance to win the World Championship in his rookie year. Which would just be so frickin' awesome...

Would I rather Massa or 'Robot'konen win? Yes, of-course I would, but when it's Hamilton who beats them, it's not such a hard pill to swallow. Especially when I get to see Alonso's whinging mug in the papers all week.
